Edgar Sosa Promises To Punish Ho Lee To The Body

By James Blears

WBC Silver flyweight Champion, Edgar Sosa is stressing he's going to soften up his Japanese opponent with some wincing rib ticklers when they clash at the Nuevo Area in Mexico City on Saturday night.

Edgar who's the number one contender in the divison has his sights set on Toshiyuki Igarashi. But there's currently another Japanese figher to take on, called Myung Ho Lee.

Lee's relatively modest pro record of 15-2, with just five KO's isn't anything to write home about, especailly compared to Edgar's 46-7 with 28 KO's. Lee mentioning that he was undefeated in fifty amateur bouts, passed without a ripple of response.

Standing side by side and then face to face at the WBC's weekly press conference, Lee almost towered over Edgar, who promised to bring him down to size.

Lee, sporting a blonde hair style had caused quite a stir,  arriving in a surgical mask and taking some time to remove it.

He wouldn't predict a KO, but said that Edgar's defeated a string of Japanese fighters, and he himself is determined to stop the rot.
